The Nomadic Peoples of Mackergelland is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, avant-garde cinema, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 262 million Mackergellandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 63.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Mackergellandian economy, worth 3.15 trillion Kroners a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Book Publishing, Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 12,031 Kroners, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, clergy who start talking about politics are forced to take a holy vow of silence, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, and the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mackergelland's national animal is the Panther.

Mackergelland is ranked 232,275th in the world and 8,049th in the South Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 4,415.44 Standard Monetary Units.
